About Jhonnie Mikael Kern

Doctoral Candidate in Private Law with focus on Maritime Law.

My research field is primarily within the private law aspects of maritime law with focus on shipwrecks and wreck removal. Thus my interests especially lie in wet shipping matters and their connection with private law.

More specifically the project concerns wreck removal and the contractual processes involved when removing wrecks as well as questions of liability. As the salvage and wreck removal industry has become more and more advanced, the cost of wreck removal has also risen rapidly. At the same time, there are various legal questions related to wreck removal that are uncertain concerning e.g. liability issues. The contracting processes involved when removing wrecks also tend to be complicated. The project deals with these matters. 

I lecture in private and maritime law on the law program.

Holds a Master of Laws from the University of Gothenburg. Previous legal experience includes, among other things, working as an editor for the largest law review in Sweden, Juridisk Publikation, as well as a summer internship at the district court of Gothenburg.

Main supervisor for the project is Claes Martinson.
